Coastal Change Pathfinder follow-on evalution - FD2679

The work will provide Defra and others with further clarity as to whether rollback and buy/leaseback are feasible and desirable options for Local Authorities affected by coastal change where traditional coastal defences are not deemed appropriate or affordable. This will provide useful evidence for Local Authorities working through their options and, if such schemes are found to be feasible and replicable, could provide authorities with new approaches to adapting to coastal change.
